..."helping the poor"?

Some people may be aware of the background behind my asking this question. This thread is not about that background, and I will now specifically ask that none of that be brought up in this thread.

I also ask that anyone attempting to answer this question spend less than 500 characters answering it, it's a rather simple question and IMHO obvious what the answer is. Regardless, given the (slim) possibility I may be wrong, I am posting this thread for second opinions.

My own answer is "yes". They are for nearly all intents and purposes equivalents.

"Welfare is the provision of a minimal level of well-being and social support for all citizens, sometimes referred to as public aid."

The term 'minimal level' implies helping those at the lowest 'rung' of society, ie poor.

Therefore, yes.
